Bureau Veritas Supports Wi-Fi Alliance Security Update to Fix Vulnerabilities

Taiwan, 24 Oct, 2017 - From recent published article about Wi-Fi exploit affecting all modern Wi-Fi networks, it has brought some questions whether the robust WPA2 security is still secured? 

This article reveals that hacker can use KRACK (Key Reinstallation Attach)  to attack or spy the traffic info between Access Point and Stations. Although, it has not yet proved whether it will truly harm the network, Wi-Fi Alliance has taken an immediate step to prevent billions of Station user affected from this security vulnerability. A security detection tool will be used for all certification activity after Oct.17. This tool will detect whether a station is vulnerable or not and further info will be collected and analyzed by Wi-Fi Alliance. Device vendors should be aware of this vulnerability and take necessary action to ensure the security protections.
